Governance education for AOA members

The day before the commencement of the AOA SA/NT ASM, AOA will offer a half-day governance education session for AOA members.

   When: 3pm–6.30pm, Thursday 8 August 2019

   Where: Level 4 meeting room, SAHMRI, North Terrace, Adelaide


The course has been developed and customised for Australian orthopaedic surgeons by AOA CEO Adrian Cosenza, who is a long-standing fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors. It provides an increased understanding of the effective and responsible working of boards and committees. Any AOA member currently serving on an AOA committee, interested in doing so, or looking to more effectively and productively engage with hospital committees or other groups, is encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity. The course is offered at no cost, and is a valuable member benefit, but spaces will be limited. Registration for this workshop will be included in the conference registration form.


We look forward to welcoming you to the meeting
